    Am I missing a setting here or something, the last few phones I have had, Palm and WinMo, would allow you to dial a phone number from within a text or calander event by taping on it, any string of 7 numbers or more if you clicked on it it would ask if you wanted to dial, this is really helpful of someone texts you a ph # and you want to call it

    Saw that, that is freakin weird that's exactally what I'm talking about did your number have any spaces in it, in the other devices I have used it didn't matter if there was a space for example tapping

    5551112222 would dial but so would
    555 111 2222 or
    555-111-2222

    So far examples 2 and 3 do not become underlined and allow me to dial I have not been texted ex 1 yet
